Dirty little tanking secrets.

I like to queue for LFD with a guildie healer, and play like I just bought this account off of eBay.

If someone calls me out or tries to kick me, I then flip a switch and start destroying the dungeon in dps and healing. If no one calls me out, I continue on my merry fail way.

I taunt off DPS if they pull aggro.

Once.

I'm leveling this toon (my second tank) and figured out this fun little trick the other day. In a group with a BM hunter I switch to battle or berserker stance and then only pick up threat on the mobs the hunter isn't attacking. I then repeatedly ask him to turn pet taunt off (even though I know it already is) until he rage quits or gets vote kicked.

Might sound mean, but my main through wrath and cata was a hunter. Nothing prepares a hunter for the world (of warcraft) like a little LFD hazing.

Anytime i get one of the healers who likes to be a jerk, or freaks out and spams enough heals to drop them to 80% while we are just standing there, i like to forget i have CD's and mana sponge as much as i can untill they are oom, then pull the next pack and down them without any heals

In H-palace, if any melee dps have been pissing me off, then on weaponmaster i like to position him just right so they either have to stand with me, ot get hit by a axe or fire, or the darts

Sometimes during raids I use an adult diaper to avoid having to leave my computer to take a bio break...

I have no clue what I'm doing most of the time. I pull !@#$. Pop cooldowns. I don't taunt off of stupid DPS more than once and everything just "magically" dies. I think they're scared of my green skin.

During Firelands I told the guild that the turtles were a nod from Blizzard to Mario, then proceeded to laugh hysterically when many of the dps died by trying to hop on their heads.

I don't look at my screen while tanking. I position the mobs, drop death and decay, and spam d (deathstrike) and 4 (blood boil) with my left hand, while I read the news on my second monitor. I only look back my wow client once I no longer hear the "ting-ting" noise of combat, and then move on to the next pack.

I just arbitrarily guess when I have enough threat to last the fight and tab out

I was tanking Prince in Kara as a druid. Prince was at 40% but I had to !@#$ like, several minutes ago. I bailed to the bathroom, we got lucky with infernos, Prince died. It was only our second successful kill.

If you are doing crap damage, but constantly yelling "go" or pulling mobs for me - I'm going to sit there until you get vote kicked or I do. Absolutely NOTHING gets under my skin more than the worst DPS in a five man being an impatient little @$@%.

I actually like playing with crappy players; some of my best WoW memories are walking into guilds - taking over the raid leadership position - and pulling people through content they never would have seen without me (no longer relevant with LFR).

I'd significantly rather get stuck with three %^-*ty dps who are nice people than three awesome DPS'ers who can't stop being #$%hats the whole run.

I haven't raided seriously since WoTLK (and not *really* seriously since Vanilla); I'm not in a hurry to do anything, and I'm not above being childish if I don't like the group I get and refusing to tank, but also refusing to leave. Be nice and I'll rush you through.

If a DK DPS channels Army on the pull, I get up and get another drink and cheer them on.

Back in WoTLK I used hysteria on Dreamwalker (when it was a blood talent) and was subsequently kicked from my guild.


That. Is. Pure. Win.
